Another Coal Mine to reopen

VICTORIA - A mining company in northeastern British Columbia has started hiring as it prepares to reopen the Wolverine Mine on Monday.
Conuma Coal Resources Ltd. says the reopening of the mine 15 kilometres west of Tumbler Ridge is expected to create 220 jobs.
That's in addition to 170 jobs that were created when Conuma Coal restarted the nearby Brule Mine in September, just months after purchasing both properties and a third coal mine in northwestern B.C. from Walter Canada.

That strong BC economy we keep hearing about is alive and well.

That strong BC economy we keep hearing about is alive and well in Statistics Canada’s economic report for 2015.
“British Columbia did have the best economic output of the western provinces and, in fact, it was the best economic output in 2015 of all Canadian provinces and territories,” says Matt McDonald with Statistics Canada. “We saw that gross domestic product expanded 3.3% in 2015. This was actually the sixth consecutive annual increase for British Columbia. Economic output has been quite strong relative to other regions in Canada recently.
